I CAN’T TELL YOU WHERE I AM. Even though I’ve told you every place I’ve ever loved, not just because it’s part of the gig but because it’s excited me to do so. (I’ve found treasure sticking out of the sand. Here, look at my treasure!) But this place, the place of practically my best holiday ever, I’m keeping under wraps. It’s certainly not where you think it might be. I can hear the sea as I sit here. It’s like the wind in a shell but curling the sound of itself through the pine forest, so that it might be here at my door at any moment, or it might be simply that my ears have made it up. My coffee is cold. My shack is a tip. There are…

EMMA ROBERTS Bed-hopping (p72) ‘I went on a romantic trip to Hawaii with my partner and we stayed at the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea – it was so luxurious we barely left it. The room had a gorgeous balcony overlooking the ocean. I ordered ahi-tuna tacos every day.’ Actress Emma has appeared in films such as ‘Wild Child’ TIMOTHY O’GRADY Writer, Chicago (p146) ‘The American road, any time, especially in the West. It’s free. No one is watching – it’s full of improvisation and surprise. At times it seems to touch the mythical.’ Timothy’s most recent book, ‘Children of Las Vegas’, is published by Unbound (£14.99) TOM CRAIG Photographer, Fashion (p164) ‘I made a trip to Svalbard in Norway once with my dear friend A A Gill in search of the elusive polar…

THE HIGH-DESIGN GUESTHOUSE CASA IRIS, TUSCANY Orbetello is too often viewed as a lunch or shopping pitstop by those renting villas on Monte Argentario or making their way to Il Pellicano in Porto Ercole. But this salty Tuscan town, which looks as if it’s floating on the glassy lagoon, turns out to be a fascinating base in its own right. It lives its chequered history with all the nonchalance of a stylish moccasin-shod gentleman sipping a Negroni while his grandchildren play tag in the street. Casa Iris, a thrillingly pretty new guesthouse in the middle of the peninisula, is an elegant retreat in a place full of gelato-toting holidaymakers. The creation of an Italo-American couple (fashion stylist James Valeri is the home-grown half, former restaurant director Matthew Adams is from North Carolina),…

TO SAY HECKFIELD PLACE IN HAMPSHIRE has been much anticipated would be the understatement of the decade.

The original 2012 opening date was pushed back. The owner, Gerald Chan, the billionaire head of a private-equity group, just wanted to get it right, I was told. In the time it has taken to ‘get it right’ at Heckfield, Cliveden House has completely refurbished and added a…
